Irony is a device which speakers or writers use to point to a contrast between what is stated and what is really meant; or between what is expected to happen and what actually does happen.
Types of Irony
There are two basic kinds of irony.
- Irony of situation- This is evident when events turn out to be different from what is expected.
- Verbal irony- Verbal irony refers to a statement in which the implied meaning intended by the speaker or writer differs from what is overtly expressed.
